It was a change of the scene but not the routine for the players on Wednesday when training took place in front of several thousand City fans at the Etihad Stadium.
We hope Joe's not got a case of the 'Thousand Yard Stare' yet, the season's not even started. More like an admirable amount of focus from the big fella.
Looks like that concentration paid off in spades as Joe was put through his paces in front of his adoring public.
"Ahhh! Still got it!" purred Roberto as he rolled back the years with a virtuoso display.
"That's it, I'm off!" He may be new on the scene but Stefan's already sussed how to make a quick getaway when the camera lenses are out. There'll be none of that when it comes to the post-match inquisitions he'll get from CityTV...
